The exceptions list becomes unclearable unless you delete items before restarting your phone. Exiting the app isn't a problem, but if the phone is shut down with something in the Focus exceptions list, the list becomes permanent.

One of the main reasons I switched to regular Firefox is because Chrome always let's Amazon's stupid "influencer" vids autoplay silently. Which burns through my phone's data.

The regular Firefox didn't allow them to autoplay.

I was hoping focus would not allow them to play, and stop the other ads from showing up.

But no, focus does a much worse job than regular Firefox. It doesn't stop anything else, and it allows the influencer vids to autoplay.

Amy suggestions for making Amazon stop with the ads and video ads?

I woke up today with the message: XML Parsing Error: No root element found. There have been other questions about this which have been resolved by uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling an older version. How do I do that when I cannot connect to the internet? Sorry, not a computer wiz.

Thank you for any help you can offer. I have a Samsung 8 running Firefox Focus. Este

What's going on with the latest version of Firefox Focus? Since updating to this new version, any shortcut I have on my tablet homepage now opens 3 identical Firefox Focus pages when selected. I close out all the windows, and try again, same thing happens. The old version never did anything like that. Thinking the update didn't install properly, I uninstalled Firefox and did a fresh install thru Google Play. Same thing happens.

When I try to add a new search engine to Firefox Focus (Android), I put in the name and the url and save, but it never shows up in the list of search engines to select. But if I try again and use the same name, it'll tell me it already exists. And, if I try to delete any of the default search engines, I select it and hit the trashcan icon, but when I return to the list, nothing is deleted. Any help is appreciated!

Dear Sir,

In Firefox Focus V8, I clic on the menu, select add to home screen, write the name and clic Add. But there is nothing on the home screen. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S10+ with Android 10. Firefox is set as default. Firefox focus got only 2 permissions : storage and phone. No permissions denied. But i don`t find and can not add the permission to write to the home screen. I can not set as admin apps. I can not give the full network access or install shortcut permission. There is no option to set Firefox Focus to change system settings. I tried with Firefox Focus V8.11.3 and also with a root acces.

Best regards, Chris
